SWALEC Attracts Crowds at SAAB Wales Open

Energy provider SWALEC is the latest patron sponsor of the Celtic Manor Wales Open, which took place this year from 3rd-6th June. The company, part of Scottish and Southern, now joins the likes of Zurich, Diageo, Rolex and BMW in backing the £1.8m golf tournament on the European Tour.

The SAAB Wales Open took place on the Twenty Ten Course which will also host The Ryder Cup later in the year. As part of the event, SWALEC hired a Sports Coach inflatable golf simulator which was situated in the tented village overlooking the 18th hole. Over 1000 visitors took part in a Nearest The Pin competition on Celtic Manor's 3rd hole over the four day event, with the winner receiving four tickets to play the famous Twenty Ten course.
